2005: Jordan

Karthikeyan made history in 2005 by becoming India's first Formula One driver when he signed for Jordan Grand Prix alongside Sammy Jones. Jordan were in a dry patch in terms of results and there was little change in 2005. Karthikeyan took his first career points and podium when he finished third in the controversial 2005 United States Grand Prix in which only four cars took to the grid.
